The process of stone formation (lithogenesis) has five stages. Effectiveness of distant lithotripsy is different at each of these stages. In children, at the preclinical stage of the disease treatment is effective in 100% of cases. Routine ultrasonic examinations of children 2-3 times a year allow the diagnosis of the calculi at early stages of lithogenesis.
